Every single U.S. film released in 1964 or later is still protected by copyright unless it lacks a valid copyright notice. (And some that lack such a notice are copyrighted.)

If you want people to research the copyright status of a movie, then you must provide the release year.

The following is not p.d., because its copyright was renewed:

SALTY O'ROURKE, a photoplay in 11 reels
by Paramount Pictures. (C) l6Feb45;
L13241. Emka, division of Universal
City Studios, Inc. (PWH); 22Feb72;

I can't comment on the others, but the "Amos and Andy" TV series is still under copyright.
